Camp Imagination is a two week, tuition-free summer program for elementary- and middle school-aged children in West Baltimore’s Franklin Square/Poppleton community. The program focuses on students who are either behind in reading or who need a boost in their motivation to read. Camp Imagination inspires a love of reading and writing through the visual and performing arts.

This year the theme of camp is “Lift Every Voice.” Throughout the day campers will learn and practice literacy skills through poetry and other texts that are connected to the theme. They will write original pieces as an expression of their own hopes and dreams, as well as struggles and challenges. Campers will present these written pieces orally though musical arrangements, spoken word, recitation, and song, enhancing the Common Core English Language Arts standards through the National Core Arts standards. They will have two field trips that connect with the theme. In addition, campers will host and participate in an Open Mic Night Poetry Slam on the first Friday of camp. Then, at the end of the two weeks, campers will host a Variety Show for family, friends, and the community to “lift their voices” in celebration of their hard work and accomplishments.

Camp Imagination is a place where imagination, creativity, fun, and literacy go hand-in-hand. It is our hope that each child leaves camp with a love of reading and writing, along with an enthusiasm for learning that will last a lifetime.
